  1. I apologize Tom, I called you Thaddeus in my comment to your latest post. I guess, in a way our creations are us as well. Blessings. Trea

  3. I just discovered your blog and have spent some time reading. There are a few posts that I would love to be able to “re-post” for a few friends…on facebook, etc. I don’t see a way to do that but would love to be able to share your thoughts with others. Nice work and please keep writing!

    • Thanks so much for your kind comments! I do need to update the site to make the posts available via e-mail and also linkable to Facebook. I’ll be working on that in the next couple of months, so stay tuned.

    • Hi Lisa,

      14 months later, I have finally gotten around to adding some Twitter and Facebook “share” links. Thanks for your suggestion!

      Tom

  4. I learned a lot from this post, great help for me, thank you!

  5. Hello Tom,

    My name is Seth and I live 3,000 miles from you out in Washington State. This will probably come off sounding crazy, but I awoke about 40 minutes ago by an audible voice in my ear which instructed me: “Enter the inner way.” I assure you that I am NOT crazy and I never hear voices. It freaked me out so badly that I thought I would have a heart attack! I had no idea what it meant, so
    I googled the phrase and came across your site. Please put me on your mailing list, I guess?

    Thanks,

    Seth Mechler

    • Seth, a great story! And you’re not crazy. I’ve had similar things happen to me, odd phrases that appear in my head usually coming out of a dream that lead me to discover new things. (Last time it happened it was the name and number of a bible passage, and I’m still trying to figure out its relevance.)

      Unfortunately, I can not sign you up for e-mail updates. You need to do it yourself. Just go the right hand column of the home page and sign up in the space under “Follow blog via e-mail”. Good to hear from you, Tom

  6. Hi Tom,
    May I send you an advance (PDF) copy of the newest book from Marshall Vian Summers, entitled Secrets of Heaven, in case you might be interested in reviewing it for your readers? It’s a compilation of 300 succinct, angelic utterances like the one excerpted above; your readers will resonate with selected quotations. It is due for publication September 9th.

    Thanks, if you’d like to review, please email and I can send the pdf.
    Will, Society for the New Message

  7. Tom, I subscribed to your blog about 2 years ago, but was not getting new posts for a while. I’m not sure why. I just re-subscribed. I’m looking forward to reading more from you!

  8. Hi Tom, I think you have a wonderful blog, and I thoroughly enjoy reading it. I have nominated your blog for the Dardos Awards. I wrote a post on it and this is the link: http://elizabeth-cardenas.com/2014/09/15/dardos-awards-premios-dardos.

    Blessings,
    Liz
